Blocking stage access via stairs with your stacks?

Yup!  Stage access for musicians is through the "green room" doors at the back of the stage to the left and right.  There is also a side door on the right side where we (crew) can access.  Technically there is "squeeze" room around the stacks. and their placement discourages civilians from trying to get on stage.

Just usually blocking stair access is a no-no for fire safety and accessibility reasons...something to think about.

Were you running in CFG mode or dual PA?

I'm sorry. I did intend for a tiny little bit of snark but mostly it was an honest question that I hoped would lead to more discussion.

Example:
Most speakers, even if you splay them, are CFGs when you put them next to each other. To a large extent the only other option (if you want to use all your speakers) is Dual PA. And there are a lot of other gotchas if you go down that path.
 
Are folks running dual PA much anymore? I don't think I've ever tried it for an actual gig (although I've had a whole lot of gigs where the audience's blend of monitors and mains mimicked it a bit). 

Again, sorry if my question came off negative. I'm glad people are excited about setting up and doing shows.

After the comment I got from Geert I choose not to say anything as I am sure that Steve Mason was proud of that work.  Not every single picture needs to be turned into a teachable moment.

Never seemed to be a problem for Clair and ... every other major and minor touring sound contractor since the 1970s but hey there is always something new to learn.

People tend to not hear the things they cannot fix.  That said, I don't recall flat packs of S4 or R2, although sometimes splay was only 20 or so.  Pre S4 was before my time...

Not to mention the clubs.  DJ oriented dance clubs generally surround the dance floor with CFG's.  That's how it's done.

When somebody wakes up in the morning hating the fact they're alive and decides to go online and share the misery with the rest of the world there's not much one can do...

I held back on my response (expletives) out of professional courtesy and respect for this site.

Ouch.
I'm sorry Steve and Scott. After reading that other thread I see that my comment on this thread looks tone deaf. And probably was/is.

You're good with me sir.  I took it as chiding and that's something I do all the time.  The other thread, well that's a different story - way out of line with intent.
